Photographer's Note

A fun capture with slow shutter and panning to give the feeling of speed & motion, just about almost every element of this shot is blurred -other than the words on his shot- and everything happening so quickly. This was taken in Danang city centre on a dull cloudy day as I was trying to get away from the traditional static shots and I quite liked the low light background giving the feeling of enclosure and contrast to the subject.

I'm afraid panning an image will hardly ever totally freeze sharply the main subject especially in this case with two easy going cyclists doing slightly different speeds in the same frame. Thus a slight higher shutter speed will only counter act the effect I was trying to achieve. A bit of trial and error but managed to nail this photo pretty quickly.

The shot was taken at 1/8s f/14, camera was mounted on a monopod.
